Would you give a bunch of mentally ill kids in outpatient knives?

We had pumpkin carvings the other day and we all got to use knives! It was good to have some freedom and express myself in the form of carving a jack o lantern. But I’m not sure how that got approved by the hospital.

In my psych ward, I couldn’t even use a pencil to write my poems. I had to hope that some doctor or nurse was kind enough to give me one. whenever I got a pen, I held onto it for dear life. a good pen lasted a very long time, even until my day of discharge
